Panoramic photographs captured by a digital camera that produces 160-million-pixel images will go on show at the Focus on Imaging show in Birmingham from 22-25 February.

Four, 8ft-long, prints by professional photographer David Osborn will be displayed in what is being hailed as the first public exhibition of such pictures.

Osborn used a Seitz 6x17cm Digital, a scanning camera, claimed to be capable of capturing 160MP images in one second.

‘Of course photographers have been able to print big for years but there has always been a corresponding fall-off in quality,’ said Osborn. ‘Here you can see every little detail – the scrape of mortar around every brick of these buildings.’

He added: ‘Prints like this create an entirely different quality, so life-like you feel as if you are looking through a window on to the subject.’

The images were printed on Innova Art paper and will go on display at the Innova stand (C4).

? Amateur Photographer magazine will be hosting a stand at this year’s Focus on Imaging which takes place in Halls 9 and 10 of the NEC from Sunday 22?Wednesday 25 February. Entry is £6 but save time on the door by registering at www.focus-on-imaging.co.uk. Doors open Sun-Tues 10am-6pm; and Wed 10am-5pm.
